Careers advice from Gina

I work for Scope as a careers adviser.

I work with disabled young people aged 16 to 25 to help you think about your career options and education goals.

This is a time of worry and uncertainty for us all, especially for disabled people like yourself.

Should you still go to university? Should you continue with the course you are currently on? Should you look for a new role as you face job uncertainty?

If any of this applies to you, contact us today at careerpathways@scope.org.uk or register to talk to an adviser.

Career Pathways

Career Pathways is an independent careers advice service for young disabled people. Our career advisers will work with you to set you on the path to succeed. 

Due to the Coronavirus outbreak, all sessions will be run online and by phone until further notice.

Eligibility

Career Pathways is free and open to young people who are:

  • disabled or have an impairment or condition
  • aged 16 to 25

Career adviser sessions

You will be offered up to 3 one-hour sessions with a specialist career adviser to:

  • make you aware of all the career options and the employment routes open to you
  • develop your career goals and create an action plan to help you achieve them

You have been incredibly insightful and helpful. I really appreciate you taking the time to give me one-to-one support, it’s made me more motivated and feel less alone during COVID and losing my job.

Mentoring

Our mentoring programme is supported by Deloitte. Giving you access to free support and advice from Deloitte employees, who will support you to achieve your goals. You will find out about the world of work, different industries, and roles available to you.

The mentor scheme has allowed me to explore different career paths from further study to alternative careers that I had never considered possible because of my disability.

Making adjustments

We can provide adjustments if you need them, such as:

Careers sessions for students

If you are a school, college or university and would like to discuss offering Career Pathways sessions to your student, please get in touch.

The main thing I've noticed is the confidence that students have gained - it is clear you have helped to alleviate their anxieties and given them clear direction, which is so important at this transitional moment in their academic careers.
